Cunard Previews $40M Refurbishment of Queen Victoria

Lido Sun Deck

Following the recent Cunard announcement revealing Queen Victoria's $40 million refit in May, the cruise line unveiled digital renderings showcasing the revamped vessel. Scheduled for completion in June, some of the highlights include a new Lido Sun Deck as well as a Winter Garden. The cruise line also offered an inside look at the Britannia Club staterooms, Britannia Club Restaurant and five new Penthouse Suites

The refit will offer guests an additional 43 Britannia Club staterooms, a new restaurant, and enhanced guest experiences to previously existing spaces like the Lido Sun Deck and Winter Garden. As part of the refreshment, the Lido Sun Deck will be expanded to provide guests with extra lounge space, windbreakers, sun loungers and luxury cabanas. The shaded area has also been extended for those looking to dine al fresco. 

Queen Victoria's Yacht Club is also being refreshed, with extra capacity and extended serving hours. In the daytime, the club will host a larger selection of social activities. At 3:00 PM, the deck transitions into pre-and post-dinner entertainment venue with jazz music, followed by a DJ and dance band late into the night.
